Grey days green days

I think we all have had our own grey days. I called it this way because there are days when things are just…not just blue but grey. That is when you think you have done good things but don’t seem good enough for others. For example, have you ever experience the moment when you try to cook some meals, with all the good intention that you sincerely have- considering you are no chef, but it just doen’t seem good enough. Instead of getting a thank you for that, the meals are said to be tasteless- don’t match – don’t bring up appetite. Not to mention that those words are said to the crowd. (Oh dear.)..Of course one would feel down and disappointed.  Well, it was just one illustration.

There are plenty more of grey days… When your friend borrowed money from you but your dear friend suddenly disappered (Oh NO…).

Or the fact that nobody wants to do the dirty job so you volunteer yourself (without being paid) but all the sudden everyone complains to you and hesitates to coorperate.

Or you are a mother who struggle to bring the best of your kids, specially through the bad times; but all the sudden one of your kid hold grunches against you and refuse to be part of the family anymore. (Ouh oh).

and so on and so on. Grey days, I’d say.

I must admit that it takes time, effort, and the willingness to let go, to wipe out the grey days from me. Hm…Sometimes we tend to remember the grey days of our lives. I hope it doesn’t take too long for you (and for me) to move on. To get on to the other side of our lives, turning to the other color, like green.

Yeah, I’m sure you also have some days that surprise you, refresh you. You might say you are lucky to have that. I called it green days. For example the day when my husband surprised that I pay small amount of money at the cashier. I said, ‘I got some voucher from the bank’. Or I finally got the shoes I needed with a very good price. And more, grab car gave me free ride without my notice. Then, the young-coconut fruit-drink that I love is just two block away. Yippi…

You should notice the way I write my green days. They are shorter but plenty example that I can mention to you. I’m sure that you can also mention your green days in no time. You see, green days are small things, happy things that we often taken for granted.

In this wonderful opportunity, I’d say thank you for today and for God’s blessing upon me. Cheers to that.

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.The busiest day of the year was October 23rd with 47 views. The most popular post that day was Trade Expo Indonesia 2015.

That’s 28 countries in all!
Most visitors came from Indonesia. The United States & European Union were not far behind.

 

Thanks to WP….

70 Tahun Indonesia Merdeka

70 Tahun Indonesia Merdeka

Banyak cara merayakan hari kemerdekaan Republik Indonesia. Dengan mengikuti lomba,acara atau upacara bendera, hiburan di TV atau di panggung kampung.

Aku juga turut senang nih kalau ada pusat perbelanjaan yang membuat dekor HUT RI dengan penuh semangat,seperti yang kulihat di salah satu mall di Kuningan.

Di ultah yang ke-70, Banyak pertumbuhannya, ada kemajuan yang terjadi; tapi tak sedikit stagnansi di sana sini.
Masih banyak pe – er yang ditunda-tunda untuk dikerjakan. Padahal di luar sana, negara-negara bersaing untuk menjadi yang terbaik. Hayuk, kita selalu waspada. Jangan lengah oleh puji-pujian. Begitu kita merasa puas , kita bisa malas untuk melangkah maju lagi.

Aku berterima kasih pada para atlet, ilmuwan dan profesional, juga semua orang Indonesia yang berprestasi, berlaku baik dan menjaga nama ibu pertiwi.

Si Kembar Lahir

Si Kembar lahir.

Aih kalau ada seorang bayi lahir.Kalau dua bayi lahir pastinya aih aih…Ini lho perkenalkan Banyu dan Air. Lucu ya… Mereka lahir dengan operasi. Berat badannya mungil 2 kg dan 2.2kg. Untuk itu mereka harus rajin-rajin diberi susu agar berat badan meningkat.

Kalau sudah begini tentu ibundanya yang ngos-ngosan. Apalagi harus mengerjakan semuanya sendiri tanpa pembantu.

Minumnya air susu ibu ditambah minuman susu bayi baru lahir.

Melahirkan bayi kembar membuat orang tua selain double repot juga menjadi lebih teliti bagaimana membedakan keduanya.
Kalau dirasa belum tampak perbedan yang nyata,memang tips membedakan baju berdasarkan warna menjadi pilihan utama.

Mmm…ets tunggu dulu.Mana yang Banyu…dan mana yang air ya?…Aih bingungnya aku.

Sayombara Srikandi

Tengah malam ini entah mengapa remote tv berhenti di channel tvri.

Ada wayang orang.Saya jadi teringat masa kecilku di Solo.Ketika ibuku mengajak nonton wayang orang. Ketika aku terpilih pentas tari di solo.ketika aku dan sepupuku Leni membawakan tari pembuka untuk acara pernikahan. Disitulah awal mula aku menghayati seni tari.

Sebenarnya saat aku menari biasanya aku larut dalam tarian dan tidak terlalu peduli terhadap penonton.

Kembali ke kisah wayang wong kali ini berkisah tentang Srikandi yang membuat sayombara. Wah kenapa serajin itu dia buat aduan dengan dirinya? Ah ternyata walaupun Srikandi itu galak dan tegas, ternyata banyak yang naksir dia.

Dikisahkan dalam sayombara itu ada yang dapat mengalahkannya.Tetap saja Gunung Sewu tidak terima dan terjadi pertarungan. Ah..sebenarnya aku cerita hanya sekilas saja.Tapi dari dulu aku suka tokoh Srikandi ini.

Look at my hand

look at my hand

All of us love to do something (wheater it is playing or working). By the end of the day, we need to check out our hands to see if any of the dirt remain there. It would be lovely and healthy to clean the hands with water and soap.

Everyday is a new day. A time for us to look at our own hands. Have they been working well? Are they dirty or just tired? Whatever happen to the hands… Let’s clean them, fold them together, and have some pray with the rest of the world.
